Waka Flocka Is asking gay men not to compliment him in a recent video posted to social media!
Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka has a few things to get off his chest as he sends out a request to all gay men.
In a recent Instagram live video, Waka shared that he had a recent encounter with a gay man at the airport. He shares that the man was too friendly to him and complimenting him and he was not comfortable.
He does share that he has no problem with people sexual preference, but is not ok with a man approaching him in such any type of flirtatious way.
“I understand yall folks got y’all month and all that,” Waka Flocka said on his IG Live. “Nothing against nobody’s sexual preference, nothing. But look, I ain’t with that. So don’t approach me, don’t be having too many compliments and doing all that extra s**t. It’s out of pocket and disrespectful.”
In the middle of the IG live, he points the camera to his friend who goes by “the local shooter,” who looks at the camera and says;
“Steal a n***a soul from him,” to which Waka replies “it’s that simple.”
Many took the statement out of context and believed that Waka was saying that he would shoot any gay person who complimented him. Twitter users took to his page and tweeted;
Your post came off homophobic. A gay man complimenting you isn’t disrespectful. Your friend saying that he’s a shooter & etc, is harmful. I stay in ATL too & would welcome a public conversation on homophobia in hip hop. @WakaFlocka @MzFlame_86 @debraantney pic.twitter.com/9BxJD4QUuz

While another Twitter user came to Waka’s defense saying;
Waka Flocka didn’t say he didn’t want gay people near him or even around him he just simply does not really want a compliment or anything flirtatious of that nature. I mean that’s pretty much any other heterosexual guy he just said what some male celebrities want to say but can’t
